hmm a small hunt.. cyan? a couple pictures.
    #4746893 - 10/02/05 11:14 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i found these in a public nature park a few feet from the trail. the trail looked to be freshly layed with wood chips of some sort im not sure what kind. they were in a little spot with some ferm plants and some maple trees around, i think they were maple.. either way they were deciduous. they grew kind of scattered in no particular pattern. some were bigger than others. from what ive read in paul stamets 'psilocybin mushrooms of the world' and saw pictures of.. these mushrooms (in the pictures) seem to have a darker stem.. the gills looked a little bit lighter and more orange.. also the stems are pretty woody.. and they smell kind of strong if you smell them closely. i havent gotten spore prints yet because i just picked them today. one of the bigger ones had darker gill coloration and what looked to be a mold..white fuzz.. the same mushroom when i picked had a ton of leaves come up with it with a lot of very strong rhizomorphic mycelium growth all over. the stems are brownish and i have not seen any bluing or bruising indications yet. the caps are wavy and have the little 'bump'(forgot the real word) in the middle of the cap.

thats the best description i can give... the pictures will show the rest!

the images were from a friends cell phone, and the contrast is kind of intense.. but the mushrooms are darker in real life.. they are pretty caramelly(in the middle) to a yellowish color on the edge of the caps.

SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME these are good to eat. i will try ot be getting some spore prints asap! thanks guys.


oh yeah these were found on oregon just after a couple days of a nice rain.

Well try pinching them cyan's are known for bluing intensely when pinched! And don't forget a spore print!In case you don't know how it is done here's how:
First cut off the cap and put it with gills facing down on a white piece of paper the spores will fall and will show about in 4 hours minimum.

* Habitat (where [woods, pasture, state,province,country, altitude] and what [soil, dung, wood (dead, living, what kind of wood?)] does it grow on)
* Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
* Characteristics of the stem (length, diameter, color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
* Characteristics of the cap (diameter,color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
* Spore print color (very important!)
* Color that the mushroom bruises
* Scent of the mushroom
* Anything else you might find important

Thank you the expert's will probably help you when you've posted all the required info.

"I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn't like it. I didn't inhale, and never tried it again." Bill Clinton

"A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly fifteen hundred pounds of marijuana within about 15 minutes to induce a lethal response... In strict medical terms, marijuana is far safer than many of the foods we commonly consume. For example, eating ten raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death."
